    CIÉ Trucks in the 70s

    Those markings on the cab side appear like a PR shot - time to Dublin, Distance to Dublin, that kind of thing. Bragging rights, not a livery as such. Here's the actual livery.
  2. Too clean, my eyes!! Looks lovely George, fond of the aul brake vans and becoming accustomed to 7mm, love the dropside SR wagon and the 2mm siphon too. R,

    Irish Bufferstops

    The rail clamps are present, but there should be friction elements too - 16 in total if memory serves, beneath the main buffer and spaced out behind. I scratchbuilt a few for Boskonay, hence the nerdiness. interesting "prototype for everything" shot.

    Kingsbridge - Kadee + coupling conversions

    The very definition of railway modelling, if I ever heard one!

    Afternoon all. I was thinking of doing a cut n shut of this using two ancient Hornby LMS Stanier Coaches. Any additional info would be most welcome, length, provenance etc. to try and put together a drawing of it. Snaps from 1979 when it was clean! Ta in advance. Richie.

    IRM Weedsprayer

    Maybe for the second half of a World Cup game, or tha, not that fussed... (Mon' Columbia, daddy needs a new pair of shoes... 😛 ) But no, modelling mojo is at an all time high - graphics plates on the entire 42 project, sorting some Cemflo data in the morning, a skype date to work on our most epic project yet, and even got to do some work on my own personal E-Class projects. (reinforce the word "personal" here, be reading anything into it) Cheers Sean, always appreciated from a fellow traveller! Rich (The E Class business was last sunday afternoon during the Sunday Game Bosko, so chill.. )

    IRM Weedsprayer

    Jaysus Red, I'd take you up on that had I the time. The wiggly green pipe that used to traverse the sides, and how to do it, is currently addling me, amongst other things. R.

    Double height Beet Wagon kit is now available

    Is this of any help?

    the future

    Cross wind, air pressure, and a host of other factors can't get current aircraft to land on a 4 inch centre line of a runway perfectly, no mind into a perfect gauge rail system. Absolute nonsense.

    21mm track question

    26" centres - taken at Athy - 8.67mm in 4mm.

    21mm track question

    It works out at 100" or 8'4" - in scale 33.33mm for 4mm. As regards spacing it varies a fair bit in those photos, but 32" centres appears to be a mean dimension - 10.67mm centres in scale. HTH. R.

    21mm track question

    Ken, I popped into Lenihans hardware in Dublin, bought a few long bolts and some nuts, total spend of €1.36 and have a few working 21mm track gauges. The ones from Scalefour only work on Code 75 track, so anything more exotic (this clown here is using code 100) requires a homemade solution.

    Funny, that's the company motto too!! I think I've yer email from the "fart box" drawings discussion?

    barrow street

    Have to say that the first image really got me when I saw the DNG "For Sale" poster and thought, "ooh, 475k for starters anyway...." I made up the ones below in 2012, and have higher resolution versions if of any interest. R.

    IRM CIE 20ft Container

    The containers are designed to the iso standards 1496 & 1161, and all their sub documents, that determine mounting points, lugs, openings, and all manner of exciting things. It's a design nightmare if I'm honest, but it's to the adopted guidelines. I strongly suspect that other manufacturers read the same documents and design accordingly. If they don't, designing something that was intentionally incorrect would not sit at all well with us. R.

    IRM CIE 20ft Container

    A couple of things... Broithes puns are getting severe, I may need an innoculation 😛 Second, the MPV cannot negotiate certain curves on the network, reason why it's parked up in Kildare so often. That's what happens when a narrow gauge manufacturer tries his hand at broad gauge...It'll never become the replacement weedsprayer. Third, there are two MK3 coaches below in inchicore slated for conversion to Per Way Duties, which may or may not happen. One was to be a crew van, the other a dispensing wagon, a restaurant and EGV conversion iirc. Last time I spied them they were growing algae....Now, til I get back in my cupboard researching hinges and locking bars on ISO containers and all manner of exciting things... the Gimp.

    barrow street

    From an architectural point of view, the capture of the buildings is stonking good. The trackwork even could pass for 21mm. I'm only looking at this on mobile, but I'm goddamened looking forward to seeing it on the big screen when I get home. This is epic good, and deserves a spread in a magazine. Love the fart box too! 😆 Richie

    GNR Signal Box

    I'd love a copy of those drawings too, if you could oblige @PaulC. I have some stock GNR signal cabin drawings, if Leslie is ok with me posting. R.

    4 wheel timber wagons?

    Sounds like you've been spying on our Board Meetings ...

    CIE Locomotive Grey specification

    They are British Standard codes, for "Method for tensile testing of metals", and a "Specification for carbon steel forgings above 150 mm ruling section"... 18 B 29 is the colour code, from the BS 4800/5252 Colour Range, and is described as "Raven". Where is she now, would love to throw the RAL cards up against her to get a number.

    Bray late 50s and Hill

    If this is the location on google maps, they appear to be two remnants of piers for a bridge. I've guesstimated the old alignment on the 1948 O.S. Maps and it appears to line up. (Holding down CTRL whilst in google maps allows free orbiting or the camera.)
